SolarWinds, a provider of IT performance management software, today announced the latest version of SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM).
NCM is SolarWinds’ network device configuration and change management product for Cisco, Juniper, HP, Dell, and Brocade routers and switches.
The starting price of the SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager is $2,845 and includes the first year of maintenance.
Features of SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager
# Easy to demonstrate security compliance by performing vulnerability scanning on Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) and Internetwork Operating System (IOS)-based devices using Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) published by the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) is the main feature of the latest version.
# SolarWinds NCM also provides automated remediation options and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) compliance reports.
Nikki Jennings, group vice president, products and markets, SolarWinds, said: “Security tools focused on the actual network devices are few and far between and often IT pros find themselves manually updating and patching device software, but SolarWinds NCM automatically identifies vulnerabilities and assists in the remediation of issues providing IT pros with peace of mind.”
# By automatically receiving updated security alerts from the NVD, SolarWinds NCM helps identify risks to network reliability and security by detecting potential vulnerabilities in Cisco ASA- and IOS-based devices. A match between a vulnerability and a device will trigger an alert from SolarWinds NCM, which can be followed up with an interactive report that documents remediation steps.
# If vulnerabilities are found, SolarWinds NCM will provide an alert, compile a report on violations by control and device, and provide automatic remediation actions. By creating reusable remediation scripts that are set to run automatically whenever specific violations are detected, SolarWinds NCM provides reassurance after fixing vulnerabilities.
# SolarWinds NCM automatically analyzes router and switch configurations for compliance with NIST FISMA and DISA STIGs and includes templates for reporting on these compliance standards.
